It did not, naturally, take him long to find that there was no single organisational form. But this led him to drop the project of theorising the mechanisms of finance capital as part of the imperialist evolution of the system. Perhaps at the root of this mistake is the method of abstraction and concretisation Callinicos outlines at the beginning of Imperialism and Global Political Economy.

Successive legislative changes on the domestic and international scale provided the institutional and regulatory framework which allowed US and British finance capital to diverse into a variety of seemingly evermore fictitious forms. e. the longer temporalities that can incorporate a number of accumulation cycles – we need to analyse both the economic imperatives for capital (the search for “organisational forms in response to internal contradictions”72) and the struggles within and between classes that determine the form and content of the political response to these intrinsic and fundamental capitalist contradictions.
